in the wake of hurricane katrina. he cited the stafford act which requires areas that receive federal assistance to pay 10% of what they use. however, when florida was hit by hurricane andrew and new york city by the terror attack on 9/11. the stafford act was waived. but in new orleans, after katrina, president bush waived the act for just 60 days. angering mr. obama and others. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have got to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect to you come up with your own money here. here's the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you are part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out.

. senator obama accuses u.s. government of short changing hurricane katrina victim. >> people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> meanwhile joe biden just gave the republicans some great new material. >> how they can justify raises taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> i'm sorry, which candidate is he campaigning for? i'm confused. >>> had hillary clinton put together an investigation for the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >>> american airlines plans to check at least 11 more planes for loose seats. clamps have caused the seats to come loose on three flights. >>> hit by a car, stuck in its grill and managed to survive. >> the luckiest dog i've met. >>> now cops looking for the woman who did it. >> leave manatees alone. don't be grabbing dolphins either. >>> until tonight. >> swing and a miss and he strikes out. >>> all that -- >> even if you don't get -- >> i know. >>> pay back its debt in full immediately. >> and all that matters. >> you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a sc
for hurricane andrew. all right. 11 billion. for hurricane katrina the federal government committed more than $126 billion, $126 billion. and, yes to 100 percent of that aid is obligation free. no stafford law requirement for the local state government to put up 10 percent of that. 126 billion. typically the state picks up 25%. the actual cost of katrina's damage has been estimated variously between 96 to 125 billion. so senator obama was right. we did tree nor less differently , but unlike hurricane andrew and how we provided aid for less than half of the damages, and katrina we supplied money to account for 100 percent of the damages as they were estimated. you have to ask yourself why a man seeking the support of that group of ministers would make statements that did not provide full, the full scope of american generosity to all of our citizens. the fbi gets to benghazi three weeks after the september 11th terrorist attack. too bad the leaders, journalists , terrorists, and passers-by beat them to the scene. is the obama administration getting? author, former federal prosecutor andrew mcca
. the paradox of the mittens, katrina. >> i mean the romney/ryan campaign so far has been defined by dodge, duck and cover. there's no -- the specifics haven't been there. but you know i think it's wrong to think of mitt romney as his own man. he's a vehicle for a republican party that has become very extremist and a vehicle for a party that also is trying to straddle many different factions and fractions, but extremism has won out. so tomorrow, it's not going to be the lincoln/douglas debates, we'll hear massaged talking points and debates have not been so decisive except when the races are very already tight, kennedy/nixon, gore/bush, but we may well see the narrative of a 1% romney which we've seen reinforcing the 47%. video and that -- and out of touch with not only his own being who he was, but with ordinary voters, average people in this country. >> i'm -- i'm eager to see how romney deals with follow-up questions. ryan's stuff the contention i don't have enough time, what i'm trying to basically tear apart the american social compact, you know, in some -- if you interpret it in one way bu

." and then katrina vanden heuvel, the editor and publisher of the nation. and a columnist that appears in the washington post -- she will be our guest. and continuing to talk about the campaigns. and some more expensive issues. your calls and tweets will be involved as well. next is a call from dale in rock hill, south carolina. a republican. caller: i have a couple of comments. i will try to be brief. but the role of government -- i just turned 65 and retired. but it seems like the older we get, the more thankful we are for the role of government and our lives. when you are young and working and 30's and 40's -- yes, you pay the taxes, but to really do not pay that much attention to government. the second comment -- i think governor romney did an excellent job. but i just wonder, if president , and he a great orator was actually stuttering, i am wondering if he is playing cat and mouse with romney. the only way for him to go now is down. but in the upcoming two debates, obama could come on very strong. and this could be a planned strategy. thank you for taking my call. host: thank you
in 2007, suggesting that racism is a relief effort involved for the folks in hurricane katrina. this particular part of his offscreen comments, they got little to no coverage before they were posted on a daily caller.com. the president's deputy campaign manager is calling on the romney campaign to denounce the video, saying that the romney camp needs to stand up and say it was wrong for the daily caller to post the president's comments earlier in the week. take a listen. >> i think that allies to mitt romney are responsible and they should stand up and do the right thing and say that it was irresponsible to do something like that, particularly on the eve of the debate. it was so transparent what they were trying to do. mitt romney has been taking heat for weeks for his comments behind closed doors with his wealthy donors. he didn't care about this country. their answer is to put out eight already public release speech that the president gave five years ago. we were just talking about the reaction to hurricane katrina and the inadequate reaction to that. megyn: joining me now is
of katrina and we all know what happened on katrina. >> steve: we certainly do. it will be interesting tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily ca
into the president's controversial remarks about race and relief efforts for the victims of hurricane katrina. >>> also, frank luntz watched the debate with a cross-section of republicans, democrats and independents. he will tell us what they took away from the faceoff. he says it's unprecedented. >> when it comes to the role of government in society, which one connected to you more when they discussed the role of government, romney or obama? megyn: fox news alert, we confirmed in just the last half hour that fbi agents have now arrived in benghazi, libya, three weeks after the murder of four americans at our consulate. remember, two navy seals, a state department staffer and ambassador chris stevens were killed there on 9/11 of this year. the obama administration initially suggested the violence was sparked by anger over an anti-muslim film posted in part on the internet, but senior u.s. intelligence sources later said this was a deliberate and organized terror attack, and they told fox news that the administration knew that, was informed of that within 24 hours, leaving the question about w
to show you the now president obama is speaking about hurricane katrina and claims the victims of that storm were ignored by the government but the circumstance was different for 9-11. >> down in new orleans where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stanford act. basically it says, when you get federal money you have got to give a 10 percent match. the local government has to come up with 10 percent. here's the facts. when 9-11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on test own. forget the dollar you have to put in. that's the right thing to do. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> as we mentioned earlier the daily caller obtained the video. fox news contributor and chief of the web site carls

, katrina, fema. he tried to redeem himself by adding that enemies of the u.s. have to be hunted down. the breakthrough came through the 14th primary face-off when asking hillary clinton about eliot spitzer's plan to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. >> do you support his plan? >> tim, this is where everybody plays gotcha. it makes a lot of sense. what is the governor supposed to do? he's dealing with a serious problem. >> i was confused on senator clinton's answer. i can't tell whether she was for it or against it. parts of leadership is not just lo looking backwards and seeing what's popular or trying to gauge popular sentiment. it's about setting a direction for the country. >> the president is best what he's able to sharpen his responses and throw a punch. he was able to elevate himself in the debates with john mccain in moments like this one. >> in a short career, he does not understand our national security challenges. we don't have time for on the job training, my friend. >> senator mccain in the last debate and today again suggested i don't understand. it's true. t

of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president. here is the question. what does it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular than george w. bush? that can't good-bye. go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post your comment on my blog. or go to our post on the situation room's facebook page. >> can't be good, indeed. thanks very much for that. lisa sylvester is monitoring some of the other top stories in "the situation room." including very ominous signs coming in from iraq. >> last month was the deadest in iraq in the last two years. 365 people lost their lives to the violence that still plague it is country. half of the victims were civilians. the other half soldiers and police. baghdad's government blames blood said on sunni insurgents with ties to al q
crowd about the bush administration's failed response to hurricane katrina. republicans are highly critical saying it shows the president appealing to racial solidarity. they are touting it as a newly uncovered clip. this was already reported on in 2007 when it happened and much of that reporting came from the very same news organizations who today are calling this new video. the obama campaign said it's a desperate attempt to shift the conversation away from romney's 47% remark and obama spokesman ben leebolt said if the republicans are going for this sort of attack at the debate tonight, they are in for a surprise. more coming up after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but the beginning, the beginning is my craft. i'm an ordinary person striving to achieve extraordinary things. it started with a dream and i'm on my way there. hershey's drops. a lot of hershey's ha

response to the katrina disaster in new orleans, he did say that black people were frustrated living in the inner cities, not having any hope. none of which is inflammatory as the daily caller and sean hannity seem to think. >> maybe it is desperation as some critics are saying. the timing is key. to be fair, howard, this video tactic is being deployed by the other side as well. we pulled out this clip. this has popped up on the huffington post. >> gthe good news is survey aftr survey, poll after poll still shows that we are a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been
